In-build 130m Lürssen superyacht floated out of its shed

An in-build Lürssen superyacht, which is believed to measure more than 130 metres, has been pictured on the water for the first time while moving between sheds at the German yard.

The mystery yacht's imposing scale is put into context by the appearance of the recently launched 123 metre Project Jupiter in the background.

As the image above shows, this five-deck superyacht is structurally complete, meaning that a 2018 delivery date could be possible, depending on the interior fit-out schedule.

Lürssen’s impressive order book contains many upcoming superyachts measuring over 100 metres, but this new yacht doesn’t match the description of any of the projects we are currently aware of.

Back in 2014, brokerage firm Moran Yacht & Ship revealed that it had sold a 112 metre Lürssen that would be designed by Andrew Winch and developed under the name Project Palo Alto, but the initial drawings do not match the shape of this new yacht, which was first pictured at an earlier stage of construction in July 2016 before the bow and stern sections were joined.

Watch as the mystery Lürssen superyacht takes shape

Other megayacht projects currently underway at Lürssen include an as yet unnammed 146 metre and the 135 metre Project Thunder, which features a notably different superstructure and was pictured last year at a more advanced state of construction than the hull above.

The 139 metre Nuvolari Lenard designed superyacht Project Redwood is another possible candidate for the identity of this mystery yacht, but restrictive confidentiality agreements mean that Lürssen will not comment on any in-build projects.
